When Dan Vogler, Michigan’s largest commercial fish farmer, purchased the Grayling Fish Hatchery two years ago, the 45-year-old producer was widely viewed along the banks of northern Michigan’s Au Sable River as a civic hero. The 98-year-old hatchery, built to replenish the region’s grayling and rainbow trout fishery, closed in the 1960s, reopened in 1983, and then changed ownership and management three times in 30 years.

Vogler’s plan was to end decades of institutional uncertainty by expanding production of farmed trout for state markets while also ensuring that the stream of summer tourists to the historic hatchery could continue to feed and catch trout (50 cents an inch) in pools filled with the Au Sable’s famously clean and cold water.  Read more …

Last week, U.S. Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.) joined local and state officials, and representatives from the University of Delaware and the Center for the Inland Bays to announce two federal grants to support the development of oyster farming in Delaware’s Inland Bays.

“These grants from the U.S. Department of Commerce and USDA Rural Development will look into the business potential for Delaware shellfish aquaculture,” said Carper. “Oyster farming is a win-win for Delaware, since oysters improve water quality and farming will create another local industry that provides jobs. There is good work being done in Delaware by both public and private partners, and these grants will help further that research.”  Read more …

There has been recent interest by the aquaculture/baitfish industry and regulators to develop some type of certification/verification program to ensure that AIS-HACCP/Aquaculture Biosecurity procedures are actually in place and working. Such a certification/verification program does not exist in the North Central Region, thus pilot programs for Michigan and Minnesota will be explored and will be discussed at the workshop.

To continue these efforts Michigan Sea GrantMichigan State University Extension, and the North Central Regional Aquaculture Center (NCRAC) will be offering an Aquatic Invasive Species-Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (AIS-HACCP)/Aquaculture Biosecurity Workshop that will be held on October 21, 2014 in Clare, Michigan at the Doherty Hotel. The workshop will run from 9:00 am to 4:30 p.m. There is no registration fee for this workshop.

Seafood Source logoInternational Coffee Day (29 September) wasn’t truly necessary yesterday to inspire massive consumption of the world’s most beloved caffeinated beverage. The sun rising typically takes care of that.

Sadly, not every food or beverage enjoys such universal adoration (read: addiction) that established purveyors can simply give the stuff away to enthusiasts, hoping such a gesture will engender some brand loyalty. Take seafood, which has its own month (in the United States, at least) and is still plunging in popularity, based on a U.S. per-capita consumption rate showing a 13 percent decline over the past decade (16.6 pounds in 2004 to 14.4 pounds in 2013).  Read more …
